My Friend Endures Child Abuse

by Anonymous
(Location Undisclosed)

It all started when my friend was 4 and her mom started going out with her brother's dad. He would physically and emotionally abuse her mama. When she made him mad, he would beat her with thorn switches and big belts. After a while, when they finally got out that situation when she was 6, she had to live in a shelter with her mom and 2-year-old brother until she turned 7 years old, and then her mom moved and got her own apartment. Everything was going great, until her mom met another man.

He was nice, until they all moved together...that's when his temper came out. They moved in with her grandma, but for some reason, her mother decided to move back with him in less than a year. While they were there, he would touch my friend while she was trying to go to sleep and put his hand up her skirt.

They moved back with her grandma, but then she started getting burned by her mom and grandma and even when her mama moved in with another man, the burning and hitting continued. Her ex started coming to visit her mama and molesting her again...putting his finger in her privates and trying to block off her screaming using a pillow...he also threatened that he would hurt her mom, so she didn't know what to do. She wants help, but then again, that's her mom and her only family since her father was never in her life and regrets having her as a child.
